I threw a stone (Includes 45 minute audiobook and active table of contents) by Emma Calin

indie ebook cover

A collection of poems from the front-line of urban life, the cabs of lorries and the bluebell woods of mortality.

Oscar Sparrow was born in 1949 as the sonic boom of jets and babies began to draw a new world map of umbilical vapour trails.
He was brought up on cod liver oil and National Health orange juice. As the colour red leached its way out of the map of the British Empire,
Oscar attended a die-hard Church school designed to create noble savages to serve what was left of the savage Nobles.
The Eleven Plus exam revealed that he could not even count to eleven and he became a mechanic, labourer, truck driver, boxer and poet.
He read Wordsworth and Ford Cortina manuals in a lorry cab near both Oxford and Cambridge Universities.
Eventually he found himself in London where he joined the Metropolitan Police. Car chases and riots followed but he did not take it personally.
He spent his spare time touring the Art galleries, singing Piaf and learning French and Italian. Eventually The Authorities fell for the con
and gave him a desk job in the Art department of Interpol London at Scotland Yard. Throughout all this time he was a would be poet,
short story writer and novelist.

To Oscar, poetry is the spoken word. A link to a free, downloadable, 45 minute MP3 audio book of these poems, read by the author,
is included in this publication.

Emma Calin


I was born in London in 1962 and currently live in between France and the UK.

I have been writing since childhood and have won numerous local, national and international prizes for poetry and short stories.

I published 2 books in 2011 - 'Knockout! (a passionate romance)' and 'Sub-Prime' (a gritty short story with a free audiobook) and wrote the foreword for a poetry collection called 'I threw a stone' by Oscar Sparrow. These books are all available in digital e-book formats, although currently only for sale on Amazon Kindle worldwide (but you can now download Kindle apps for many e-reader devices eg Mac, PC, iPad Android).

Paperback versions of 'Knockout!' and 'I threw a stone' were released in the spring of 2012.

"Knockout! A Passionate Police Romance" is a love story set against a backdrop of international gambling corruption and deception. Interpol cop Anna Leyton finds herself torn between love and duty when her professional and private life intersects.

Sub-Prime is a prize-winning hard hitting short story about courage, exploitation and love. It is a raw and brutal expos
